A Letter from the Editor
White Privilege — At Travelnitch, we create opportunities for shared learning, so parents and children can explore the world together.
We deliver new and exciting experiences to encourage dialogue and provoke curiosity. For that reason, we have three primary goals: – Strengthen the bond between parent and child through a shared love of travel. – Forge a more meaningful connection between kids and the world around them. – Promote creative learning to inspire a lifelong passion for exploration.
Travel plays such an important role in our lives. It has the ability to change us for the better. It’s an experiential education that teaches us how to feel, think, act, and react in positive ways. Travel fosters creativity, builds confidence, and teaches us all to be more tolerant. My own kids benefit from travel every time we hit the open road. No amount of money can buy those life lessons.
Travelnitch is inspiring the next generation of explorers. We believe travel is a wonderful way to ignite the imagination and get kids excited about the world. However, we need your help to make this possible. Please spread the word and support our efforts to raise citizens of the world. Let’s go on this adventure together!
I have hesitated to write about the ongoing tragedy in our nation. Not because I do not care, or because I do not wish to be political. I just feel it’s more important to listen than to speak at this very moment.
I am white. I benefit from white privilege. I do not know the fear and anxiety that so many in our country suffer from each day when they step from their homes. At the same time, I do not want you to mistake my silence for disregard or indifference. Please know that I stand with you, in this moment and always.
#BlackLivesMatter to me.
The hate fueling our nation goes against everything America should stand for. For too long we have spouted ideals based on liberty and justice for all; but our actions have proven there is no justice here. It is all smoke and mirrors.
Travel is about embracing diversity. I hope that someday we can learn to embrace the diversity that makes us America the beautiful. I hope that we will become the land of the free, to truly earn the title we have been so loudly proclaiming for all these years.
In the mean time, I will continue to listen. I will speak up when my voice is of service to those in need. I hope you will do the same.
Together we can do better.
